friends, trying to save you a little money. my job is not just to entertain but to educate and put things in perspective. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. not everything in the market can be explained by cold hard facts. not everything is rational or even cut and dried or it can even be ascertained with close scrutiny. including today where the dow vaulted 67 points s&p advanced, nasdaq climbed .33%. the stocks of companies that basically have nothing good to say go up anyway. truly miserable quarter on friday. they rallied baa because there's a consensus with bankers keeping rates lower or taking them lower, the second half of 2013 will be better than the second half of 2012. and that will eventually propel stocks higher. so it's best to get in on the ground floor than wait. we see it in johnson & johnson, which not only cut guidance yesterday, barely got dinged despite the cut, but was featured on the front page of the "new york times" today in an article entitled "maker aware of 408% failure in hip implant." this stock rallied 10 cents on the news. come on! ♪ hallelujah >> how is that for
to entertain you but to teach and educate. call me. 1-800-743-cnbc. if things are actually better than we thought. that realization makes someone pay more for companies. and it makes us willing to do stuff. hence this market's amazing powers of levitation. however, we're still also in the middle of earnings season. only 30% of a lot of the earnings i follow are done and that means it's dangerous times. a time when it's going to be so dangerous to shoot first and ask questions later that we've got to go over a game plan that i think will allow you to navigate things. it's a game plan for next week and i'll remind you again that before i pull the trigger on a stock you still have to do the homework and that includes listening to or reading the transcript of the conference call. last night i was drinking the monster drink and having a yuban and the keurig thing because i had to read the microsoft call, the starbucks call and i also had to get through the 3m call and it was mind-boggling. it is for you too. but that in mind you've got to do it. here's the game plan. first up, we hear from cat

collecting and education part of the same thing. everyone who pis art started off learning about it because they were lucky enough to go to school within our history program or had parents and friends interested in art. we see education as a good thing in itself but creating a new generation of collectors in the future. >> there's an interesting thing in t"the times" about valuation and where they're going and based on. we keep seeing numbers more and more crazy. the art world fools like the ate equity fund of the '80s and hedge fund of the '90s. do you trust these as they come out? >> i'm really not an expert on valuation of art, it's a product of the market. i will say as a result of more information freely accessible online, these markets get more efficient. interesting they brought up back in the '80s you want to buy or sell a certain financial security, you have be on the phone with someone and they have to be on the phone to make a sale. now that the exchanges aggregated the data you can buy it a lot more efficiently. we're essentially buying a database where all the art in the world

now for almost a decade, but the first two years we were out there it required a lot of education with wall street to truly understand the business models, that, for example, current sales and marketing costs are not linked to current revenues. this period's revenues came from sales and marketing investments from previous periods. and the sales and marketing costs that you invest this period will translate into future revenues. so sales and marketing as an example acts more like a capex than an opex. and traditional systems don't really bring that out. >> you say that as an investor, if you were looking at a subscription business, you would give them a ding if they brought operating profit to the bottom line because cutting sales and marketing is a sign that they can't effectively go out and acquire new business? >> it is probably a saturated market and growth will slow. if growth is going to slow, the going to be worth much less. >> your piece from all things d is an important read. thanks for your time. >> absolutely. thank you very much. >> time for squawk on the tweet. netflix

this so we're happy to have the education. one of the questions that came up in my mind while you were speaking in the last segment was politics. and a lot of the conversation we have here at the world economic forum is about politics. how is an investor do you put that in to your economic machine, if you will, you know, when it comes to this debt ceiling issue, or it comes to who's going to be elected, or health care issues or what have you. how is that -- how do you put that in to your investing hat? >> well, everything is a transaction, and it won't have an effect on prices, in any event, unless it has an effect on a transaction. so what i do is i know who the buyers and the sellers are. and then by thinking that through, i think how will it have an effect on transactions. far more important than, over the long term, the leader of a country will have some effect on the whole overall health of the economy. but even -- they can't even res. they're, you know, it's a very difficult challenge. the whole political system. you could be president of the united states and it doesn't mean you
